Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: How Samsung might leave rivals in the dust

Samsung will soon unveil two Galaxy S6 versions, hardly secrets for anyone who’s been closely following the numerous Galaxy S6 leaks that hit the web in the past few months, and there are plenty of reasons to get excited about the handsets. The phones will have a great new design, a better camera than any other Galaxy models, and significantly less bloatware — at least according to Samsung’s own recent teasers coupled with some of the most recent reports.

On top of that, there’s one more reason to get excited about Samsung’s new creation, as the phone might be significantly faster than any top flagship from the competition, including the iPhone 6 and the upcoming HTC One M9. More →

Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

Samsung has managed to make quite a name for itself over the years — in more ways than one. The company practically came from out of nowhere and skyrocketed to the top of the smartphone market in just a few short years, quickly becoming the No. 1 vendor in the world by shipment volume. Of course, the company borrowed a lot from Apple along the way, and it made a reputation for itself as a copycat as a result.

Companies borrow from each other all the time, of course, but Samsung was probably a bit more blatant about it than it should have been — see this secret 132-page guide to copying the iPhone that Samsung made back in 2010 for an example.

And now, it looks like Samsung might be back to its old tricks with the upcoming new Galaxy S6. More →

Huge leak: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured for the first time

If you thought the Galaxy S6 model that’ll sport a curved display would get similar software features as Samsung’s Note Edge phablet, then you might be in for another surprise. As SamMobile reports, the Galaxy S6 Edge might lack the special Edge functions available on the Galaxy Note Edge, as Samsung has apparently chosen a different approach to such displays.

Even more interestingly, a handset said to be the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge Samsung intends to announce this coming Sunday has just been pictured for the first time More →

You can make your Android phone (or iPhone) look like a Galaxy S6 right now

There’s plenty of buzz surrounding recent leaks and rumors suggesting that Samsung’s next-generation flagship phone, the Galaxy S6, is shaping up to be another iPhone copy from the South Korean electronics giant. Nothing is certain until the handset is unveiled this coming Sunday, of course, and if the new S6 is an iPhone copy, we’re not so sure that’s entirely a bad thing.

Speaking of copying, still have some time to wait between when the Galaxy S6 is announced and released, but anxious fans can make their current smartphone look like a Galaxy S6 right now. More →

Some disappointed Android fans don’t want to believe recent HTC One M9 leaks are real

Are the recently leaked videos of the HTC One M9 just part of an elaborate con by HTC to trick us into being disappointed before blowing us away with a completely redesigned monster smartphone next week? That is what one disappointed Android fan is saying in the wake of Tuesday’s massive leak of HTC’s One M9 promotional videos, which left them feeling that HTC had essentially mailed it in with its upcoming flagship phone.

Are Apple’s newest iOS 8 updates making your iPhone’s battery life better or worse?

You can already pre-order Samsung’s Galaxy S6 from one carrier

There is almost nothing that we actually know about the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge at this point. There have been tons of leaks and rumors, of course, and our own solid sources shared all of the key specs and details for the phones, but nothing is set in stone until Samsung makes it official this coming Sunday.

Despite the fact that absolutely nothing is really known at this point, one wireless carrier is already letting subscribers pre-order the year’s most hotly anticipated Android phone. More →
